I'm on my University's network in my dorm room, and more and more recently, I've been getting throttled to external internet because of
Current Status:Your IP address is in the ResNet Penalty Box because you have exceeded a limit of 3000 connections (flows) to other hosts/sources. To correct this, please reduce the number of active uploads/downloads. Your current status: excessive flows (4824 active flows).
How can I have this many connections? I've scanned my computer for spyware (nothing there), I don't have torrents running, and all I have open is AIM, MSN, Steam, Ventrilo, and Firefox.
What could be causing this?
